We've been talking a lot about marketing ourselves, creating a stir etc

This is how one Aussie Hurdler is doing it.

The moment I read "Aussie Hurdler" I knew exactly who it was going to be. Get out of my brain rolleyes.gif

Hahaha. Oh well, she is a good hurdler for her age. I am sure she will re-enforce her name in a more 'sporting' manner than she is right now. biggrin.gif

I liked the fact she won the race as well.

But this should help her get some decent sponsorship to finance her sporting career.

Smart (and sexy) move on her part.

I couldn't agree more. The thing is, I think that is her normal warm - up routine. Since individuals don't have control over viral videos and all.

I think she will have a career Hurdling for Australia in the regular Olympics eventually.

Do you think if Petrucci warmed up like that in Rock Discipline, that he'd be a viral YT hit all over the world ?? laugh.gif

You should have known! And you accused poor Nihilist, though we all know he prefers lace.
But I gotta admit, mudbone looked fabulous yesterday night, never heard the crowd cheer so much for us.

We played amazingly last night! Who knew that such a large crowd would come out to watch four men dressed as women playing guitar!
